Comes love - nothing can be done
29 March 2015 | by cekadahSee all my reviews

A very ordered life doesn't protect you. Walter finds this out the hard way!

This nice indie flick tells a simple story of Walter who imagines he has a gift from the almighty and Walter is sure of himself in his well ordered highly defined daily life. His mother is an enabler. Walter discovers his heart needs more when he unwantingly falls for Kendall, the beautiful blonde who also works at the cinema multiplex. For the first time Walter encounters his internal feelings and his daily life begins to crumble. He thinks he's going mad - enter the great scenes with Dr. Corman.

This is a fine movie by Director Anna Mastro but somewhere the story becomes detached and you cannot feel for Walter. He's not a character you can care about and at movies end its a big 'so what'.
